She presented very good arguments and persuaded many people to follow what she was arguing about.

While not a traditional strategy (i.e. not one usually taught), Kelley masterfully directs the reader’s anger at the leaders of these states. It would easier for Kelley to discuss the impact of child labor on society, but Kelley’s presentation of an enemy gives readers someone to write to and attack—it presents a solution, of sorts. Kelley’s brilliant use of rhetorical strategies causes the reader to experience her message rather than gloss over it. Instead of stating something as basic as “Child labor is bad, and must be stopped,” Kelley takes the reader on a journey across America, and shows them the effects of child labor.

The speech given at Womens National Press Club in 1960 by Clare Boothe Luce was a strong argument by the statements made. She shows ethos and logical appeal to her audience by condemning her argument to her audience. Luce slows starts by setting up her audience where she goes on to criticize the tendency of the American press to give up journalist integrity.

Although all her examples, evidence, and points make her writing more effective it also becomes problematic for other, unintended audience members, and to the way society might begin to portray Millennials. Tyler ends her article by stating that millennials are “intelligent, well-educated and quick to draw remarkably accurate conclusions,” (482) but when she uses words like “deal,” (482) and “prepare” (481) that have negative connotations, it alludes that we are a burden and that people need to be concerned. Not only does she mention Helicopter parents, but she also doesn’t hold the older generation accountable for raising millennials the way they did or still do. The article, although it is well written and makes many frank points that many of us do, becomes problematic when we consider that not all people are the same. Every person is an individual and unique, not only are people individuals, but also in this day and age many people, older and newer generations, do the things that we stereotypically do.
Negative thoughts will make an individual more inclined to avoid others. In a study about the effects of positive thinking, the article reads, “When you practice positive thinking, a connection with other people happens more easily, as you are open to them, and not so concerned with your own stuff” (Diaz).

Not only clear structure, she brings many different experts’ quotations to prove her arguments as logical information.
Stephanie Ericcson appeals to readers emotions, because everybody does what she says in her writing. Being around people, and telling them things don’t always come out like they should, When talking to people it’s ok to tell the truth sometimes. People don’t always need to know the truth. Being in a bad situation and trying to get out of it, and telling a lies ok, some may not agree, but I think its ok. Rhetorical: why is the speaker?
Another point that stood out to me in Thich Nhat Hahn interview with Oprah was when he says, “anger is energy used to act, acts of wrong things, compassion is better” (Oprah Interview). How you response to an event can persuade the outcome of the entire situation. If you go into the discussion with anger, there will most likely be a negative outcome.
